Manage Capital Adequacy through Risk Identification, Assessment, Quantification, Aggregation, Allocation and Reporting

Oracle Reveleus ICAAP Analytics and Oracle Reveleus ICAAP Assessments provide a process-driven and workflow-based approach for risk identification and materiality assessment.
Through a thorough and structured analysis of a bank’s activities, business units, regulatory and market environments as well as historical scenarios, identified risks are assessed across a combination of factors like size, complexity of instruments, ratings and collateralization.
Oracle Reveleus ICAAP Analytics and Oracle Reveleus ICAAP Assessments work with Oracle Reveleus’ pre-configured and integrated economic capital models for credit risk, market risk and operational risk using advanced statistical techniques to calculate internal capital requirements against all identified risks.
An advanced stress-testing framework enables banks to assess the impact of historical or hypothetical adverse scenarios on working capital. These modeling capabilities encompass a wide range of statistical techniques including Time Series, Copulas and Monte Carlo Simulations.
Oracle Reveleus ICAAP Analytics includes a set of pre-configured dashboards and reports that can help provide senior management with an enterprise-wide and risk integrated decision-making platform for capital management and performance.
